Honky Tonk Christmas - Pinto Bennett - Lyrics and Chords

One of my all-time favorite Christmas songs.

                                     F
Merry Christmas darlin'.  I see I've won the football pool.

C                                         G
I'll buy everyone a drink....that doesn't drool.

C
Then double mine, and triple that!

    F                        C
And maybe I'll believe, it's really great to be here

                G         C             G climb to C         
...with all you drunks on Christmas Eve.

C                                        F
BUT...I hung up my Christmas sock, and I sang a Christmas chant

      C                               G                 climb to C
asked Santa for a college girl, and a liver transplant

C                                            F
But the wind still blows in Wyomin', and ol' Sam still smells like beer...

     C                 G               C      G climb to C  
I'll have a Honky Tonk Christmas, this year.  (I'll have a...)


[chorus]

C           F               C             C                                 G       climb to C
Hon-ky Tonk Christmas, this yeeeeeeeear.  Hit every bar with parkin' in the rear.

C                                  F
And go home with a six pack, and a bottle of good cheer...
           
           C          G               C       G climb to C
and have a honky tonk Christmas, this year.

[break - chorus chords]
C F C C G C F C G C G climb to C

C                          F                 C
The sun sun shines thru my room, and o'er my word.

C                             G       climb to C
My chronometer, reads January third.

   C          F             C                 F
My honky tonk Christmas has passed, and now I fear...

            C          G          C      G climb to C  
I'll have a honky tonk year, this year.  (I'll have a...)

[chorus]

C           F               C             C                                 G        climb to C
Hon-ky Tonk Christmas, this yeeeeeeeear.  Hit every bar with parkin' in the rear.

C                                  F
And go home with a six pack, and a bottle of good cheer...
           
           C          G               C       G to C finish
and have a honky tonk Christmas, this year.

Thank you, thank you thank you, lovers of fine and classical music!
